district of attorney candidates. as far as this new law, some of us know how to try gazes. some of us know when evidence is useless. by having that knowledge in hand, we can pass it on to others. the district attorney is somebody who has been there and done that. the district attorney doesn't have to go to court and try cases. the district attorney, him or herself, should be inspiration to those people in the office. people should know that my boss has been there, my boss has done that. the job is district attorney, not district manager or district administrator. >> i know how reliable the evidence is prior. i also believe i am the only district attorney in the state endorsed the policy, i am very pleased that actually passed. >> san francisco is uniformly seen as different from other cities. how should our differences be taken into account in determining what should be prosecuted? >> the question is so vague.

urging us to support the free fast passes. we are cutting transportation. students do choose to go to school, and i think our superintendent actually said it best when he said that san francisco students should have the ability to use all of san francisco as their educational class room. to have access to that, they would need transportation to do so. i urge my fellow board members to support our efforts and improve this. thank you. commissioner maufas: i just think this really helps clarify that we care about our young people in this city. it sets the tone for how we should be thinking about young people, and hopefully other measures that supported the youth in our city will come about with this as a fine example. i am grateful to the student advisory council. your ability to out reach is clearly stellar, and i just want to support it all the way. commissioner wynns: i want to thank you for bringing this, and it is a clause that we support. i am concerned again about the -- there is no reference in here to the cost. the last time there were free passes for public school kids, there i

will put more lives at risk, isolate us from women who have no money, who are poor, especially women of color, who have become central targets of these efforts. evidence of this is seen all over the country and in the form of very offensive billboards that denigrate women in my own district, which we fought against and were quickly taken down. by trying to use a combination of law and guilt, these efforts undermine the bambing health care -- basic health care rights of women. black women make decisions every day whether to parent or not. those who think they should dictate our choices won't be there when the child is is born to get better education, increased child care, keep our kids out of jail, send our kids to college or get affordable health care. this war on women must stop. we must not allow the republicans to turn back the clock on women, on choice and access to health care. i urge my colleagues to fight this war. fight against tchess unnecessary and these harmful initiatives that keep coming forward that continue to do damage to women and continue to erode our basic health c
